never mind silly arguments over their level of scene "trvth" (which is a funny debate considering the backgrounds of both guys), this is really something else in the realm of DSBM/ atmospheric BM. Strong blend of melodic and sad, with very folky touches. I look forward to hearing more!
Honestly, who gives a shit how many people listen to a band? If a band's music is good and you enjoy it, listen to it. If you don't enjoy it, avoid it, and shut up with the pathetic bullshit about "oh this is so trendy" blablabla. If bands really don't want many listeners to their music then they're in music for the wrong reasons, or they're deluding themselves into believing 5 listeners is better than 5000. Because it's not. If a band's music is good, like with Hinsidig, they will get more listeners. Artists, whatever their reasoning, will publish their work for people to praise, even if they say they don't want praise. Stop being so foolsh and get back to the real world, as a lot of black metal bands (and fans) live in some deluded, abstract world with false logic.
